I think it will be a defining moment in electoral history when the primary comes around. Either RP will be the nominee or we will see the establishment continue it's choke hold on our government.
No matter what our personal feelings about RP are, we should rally around his candidacy for the sake of the republic....or we shall fall soon.
I must say it makes me feel good too at least finally, after 53 years of not voting for a president, because I refused to vote for a lesser evil, to finally have a man I feel I can stand behind.
Voting for him anyway.

Ron Paul would be no more and quite possibly a lot less effective than Obama. The Democrats would do to the Republicans the exact same thing the Republicans did to Obama. Total and complete stalemate.
Or even more likely, he would take a couple of weeks off after the election to be re-educated as to the realities of fighting the system, just like Obama was.
I can hear Ron Paul now at about the six month stage of his Presidency "I am working harder than ever to end The Fed. But them darn Democrats won't let me run things".
The Country is owned by big money, that will not change. The Presidency is a face position only. The POTUS does not do SQUAT without the agreement of over 400 people..............
This is reality: Every four years we are given the chance to change things we don't like about our Government. It is little more than a placebo for the masses, designed to keep them from waking up and realizing they are participating in a rigged system.
Ron Paul: Vote for change...... NOTHING WILL CHANGE!!! Ron Paul will tow the same line every other POTUS has. Voting for him anyway.

Obama had 2 years with total control over the Congress, it wasn't the Repubs that stopped him.
You have to admit that little ever gets done in the first two years of a new Presidency. By the time he had his feet under him he had already made a couple of huge mistakes. Not as many as Palin would have made though!
Also, my biggest complaints with Obama are not where the Repubs stopped him, but where he caved in to the Repubs pressure and compromised!
This is the crux of why even the most staunch Obama supporters I know will not be voting for him again.
